I love indian buffets, but I don't know much about what all those curries with the lentils and chick peas and things are called. But it was good. And I was fine that being in the river north local it traded in a little authenticity in order to cater to the local population. Pros: Decor was good, and they get... More

Nice place to have your Indian food to your taste though prices are on little high side. Service is good thus delays during rush hours. No wifi in the house compare to other restaurants. If that available it could have been better.

Closely located in downtown Chicago near Clark street. Good Indian food restaurant with many options on both Veg & Non-Veg. with Bar attached. Friendly & smiling staff and serves quickly. The only flip side is the price. Indian food doesn't cost so much that it charges, well that is always debatable.

I wish I could give this establishment a negative review. I went there twice in the last one year and I do not vividly remember the experience the first time except that the food was below average. However service and ambience were okay , given its a restaurant in the city and was pricey. The latest time, we went on... More

Atmosphere was lovely and clean at the downtown location. Chicken tikka masala and madras chicken were delicious. My husband and I ordered the "dinner for two". It was a small platter of overly cooked extremely spicy meat chopped in chunks. I think this may have been leftovers from the lunch buffet. Stick with the food in sauces over rice and... More

One of the rare restaurants with Indian cuisine that I could find in downtown. A decent Indian buffet and ala carte on offer with plenty of vegetarian options. Good dessert too. Average taste though. Waiters are attentive.

Enjoyed dinner here. Waiter was excellent. Very attentive but not overbearing. Lovely wine but quite pricey. Meal for two was just over 100 dollars with wine. Food was very good but we made the mistake of thinking that their food would be a lot milder than ours. This is often the case when we are in a different country. We... More

We went (for dinner) to the India House which was near our hotel downtown. Service was friendly and efficient. The waiter kindly brought the 4 year old in our group a plate of raw vegetables. But the food was mediocre at best. We like Indian food and are neither picky nor foodies. This food was not even close to as... More

Our group enjoys Indian food especially the vegetarian options and we were not disappointed. The staff was friendly and helped us with our choices - we would go again if we were in the area.

This restaurant food was ok. Their prices for dinner entrée is high. There is too much oil and grease. The Naan and roti is good.
